Reimagining the Education System
Helping Wits students realise their full reading potential

During the last 3 weeks we have been working with a group of Wits University students during our scholar and student Shilin Speed Reading program during the June vacation break.

The phenomenal group of young, hard working students surpassed even my own expectations of what is possible with this course.

All but one student achieved a reading speed of over 1200 words per minute. Two students achieved a reading of over 3000 words per minute, including Kevin Li who reached a final reading speed of 4388 words per minute.

The fastest student at the end of the three week program, Tshepiso Tsotetsi, completed the course with an astounding final reading speed of over 18000 words per minute reading with a half-page frame.

The Fastest Reading African Woman in History

During the delivery of the 3 week program in Johannesburg in February 2017 a significant milestone was achieved.

Patience Chauraya, a Zimbabwean expat and accountant living in Johannesburg, became the fastest reading African woman in history.

Beginning the course with an initial reading speed of 217 words per minute, Patience was able to increase her reading speed to over 27000 words per minute in just 8 days worth of training. By doing so this makes her not only one of the fastest readers in the world, but also makes her the fastest reading African woman on Earth in ALL history.
